Such a simple dish with so much taste within - Yummy Teriyaki Chicken with Sticky Rice. This scrumptious Japanese technique satisfies even more difficult gourmands. The Teriyaki glaze can be used in combination with fish, red meat or poultry. This time I went for Marsala wine chicken, zucchini, sesame seeds, spring onion and lemony rice. Bon appetit!
